Dorothy is a life coach. She is about organizing,
she is about putting together an action plan
for setting up the interval steps to get you
where you’re going, setting realistic goals—and she is good at it.
Create a Dump Zone. Find a space to corral all the stuff
that you don’t have time
to put away the moment you step in the door, says Breininger.
Once you’re ready to get organized, you won’t have to hunt
all over the house for the dry
cleaning or your child’s field trip permission slip.
Dorothy encourages you to focus in on what you really want
– and prevents you from getting there…..
she provides valuable tools for change
that will result in massive action.
Equal parts cheerleader, therapist, and organizer,
Breininger has decluttered personal lives for 20 years.
When we come in, it’s sort of like an ER,” says Dorothy Breininger,
a producer and an organizing expert on the show [Hoarders].
“There’s not a lot of time to make decisions.
Things have to be done—and very quickly.
Dorothy Breininger, a life coach and chief executive
of the Center for Organization . . . ,
“One trick to wean the kids off their digital freeloading
habits is to give them a one-time gift,
say at an event like graduation.”
I have found that a few hours of Dorothy Breininger’s training
is saving me hundreds of hours of my own time,
while bringing me greatly increased efficiency and peace of mind.
Dorothy Breininger and her team were amazing to work with
—they took mountains of paper and created organized files.
We no longer feel overwhelmed by the sheer
volume of information we process.
If the room’s a mess, the sentence is swift:
hard labor, until order is restored.
If things are in place, she’ll [Breininger]
leave flowers or other rewards for good behavior.
When there are too many choices,
you spend too much time making decisions,
says Dorothy Breininger.
Not only does it slow you down but it’s mentally exhausting.
For years Dorothy and her staff have organized
my business and my life.
For me, Dorothy is like a monthly vitamin,
which ensures my personal and business success.
One of Breininger’s secret weapons is simple: hugs.
She says many hoarders are so hooked into their home
hoards that they have become distant from the people
who love them the most and certainly don’t get a lot of physical contact.
People can also be comforted by their clutter, Breininger says.
Often, their identity is attached to stuff.
It might be a past identity,
their current identity or someone they want to be.
If you can decide what is really important to you
and give up the rest, you’ll be able to use
and enjoy what you love most, . . . says Breininger.
Dorothy Breininger can turn your “To Do” list into an “It’s Done” list!
The busier we are, the harder we work,
which leads us to become tired and stressed out, said Dorothy Breininger. . . .
When we’re stressed,
we find ourselves complaining to other people,
which not only takes up time
but also feeds the negative energy.
. . . says Dorothy Breininger, a time-efficiency
coach and professional work organizer in Los Angeles . . .
“What brand do you really want to put out there?
What image do you want to put out to your boss, the world, the company?”
What’s happening is that people feel
that they should get organized and they never can,
because there is too much information, too much technology,
too much paper mail coming in, [Breininger] said.
People feel so stretched for time
that they can’t organize their own thoughts
Some people go to Bali on vacation. I just call Dorothy!
